Tim Stafford Surfboards

Mostly bonzer inspired creations, made in Cornwall. Designed, shaped, glassed, sanded, finned and finished by Tim Stafford.

I make boards that are easy to ride, that feel natural under foot. Most aren't conventional but they will help you reach that point where you stop thinking about what's under your feet and start to focus on where you want to go and how you want to get there. Why bonzers?

Always happy to chat about your needs and what would work for you but please initiate contact by email or Facebook... details on www.timstaffordsurfboards.com | Ride and glide.

Why I don’t teach surfing anymore…

I’ve seen the light. I’ve been sharing my passion with people for several years. Last Friday at Praa Sands I saw the fruits of my labours…
More than 100 people out on a Friday afternoon in September in waist high surf.

Weird Fish - bonzer bottom alaia

This one will take some explaining... its an eps two part alaia-fish cross with hardwood rails to be added by Glass Tiger... The top part acts as a flotation module whilst the low rockered but flexible bottom piece (5'10" x 18 5/8" x 1 1/4",  foiled out nose and tail, with hardwood parabolic rails shaped, is the alaia component (but with some fins)... bonzer inspired bottom....

Atlantic Pod EVO6 bonzer

Sneeky peeky of the Atlantic Pod... waiting for an unusual resin tint idea I have come up with... very simple but deconstructed. Anyways - the shaping went beautifully, really pleased with how all the subtler elements came out from the concaves to the beaked nose.

Take Sprat

5’8 x 19 7/8 x 2 5/8” Sprat with bonzer bottom. Set up with FCS quad SF4s or as FCS thruster with G5s
Double concave vortex channel set into a single concave leads into a double concave V with double concave channels set inside to guide the water out the back into a slight single concave. Gentle rocker with a flip in the tail. Beak nose for easier wave catching. 
I rode this for the first time last night and was amazed i could actually catch waves on it… it was stable on take off and drivey across the face – the waves were s**t but first impressions were good :). It’s now being tested out by a few of the Connies crew to get some feedback.

Royal Tubercles

The tubercles for fellow Post-modernist Rob Royal are finally done. 4oz glass sealing layer either side with slim roving bead. Plenty of halo left for sanding these tricky fins. Looking forward to seeing what Rob puts them on and hearing how it goes.
